Caption

Global earthquake risk map. This is the first global map of seismic risk. It gives an indication of the force of ground shaking or ground acceleration, rather than just where earthquakes are most likely. The colours relate to the force of an earthquake within the next 50 years. Areas of very high risk, such as the west coast of Central America, as well as Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan (north of India), are dark brown & dark red. High risk is pink & red, moderate risk is yellow & orange, and low risk is white & green. This map was produced by the Global Seismic Hazard Assessment Program (GSHAP), an international project that involved 500 researchers.
